The djs on from 3 to 6 before Santi; A-Trak, Kid Cudi, Blaqstarr, Mz Streamz, and Diplo put on the best show of the summer concert series in 2008. Seri. The best way to describe it might be to remember the first time you heard a DJ drop Daft Punk's One More Time in a club. Except that ecstatic, outrageous hype went on yesterday at Summer Stage from about 3.30pm on. In fact, the DJs were so out of control that I couldn't stay for Santo because it wouldn't be sufficient. It would be like coming down from a high, trying to get as high as that first dose. Just not nearly as fun. Here is the Twitter account:

A-Trak - Say Whoa
Funny enough that the show was named Fools In The Park, cause here is a photo showing a partial section of the large, overflow crowd settled in all around summer stage. They were literally having a picnic, while the djs on stage were in the process of absolutely killing their sets in historic fashion.
